We hope you’ve all had a restful summer as a new academic year looms in the near distance! The fun doesn’t stop during the summer for CULES, though, so read on to see what we’ve been up to since the end of Easter term!

Garden Party & Celebrating 65 Years

Our annual Garden Party was extra special this year, as we celebrated 65 years of Light Entertainment history. It was a wonderful afternoon of CULES, old and new, reuniting to celebrate the achievements of the society! We performed all sorts of sketches, and even had some musical performances to spice things up. As ever, the DAFTA winners were announced at the party –congratulations to all who won!

CULES’ Archives

Speaking of DAFTAs, have you ever wanted to spend your evening reading about every DAFTA award since 2020? Now, you can do just that! All winners since 2020 have been archived on the website under Theatrical Archives. We want to continue to archive important moments in the society’s history, so if you have any knowledge of such moments, please get in touch with our Webmattress at cules.webmattress@gmail.com!

It’s shaping up to be another fantastic show, so watch this space for more details!
